Wintersday is coming to Guild Wars 2 on December 10th, 2013. That's a little earlier than last year! Have you been stockpiling in preparation for this patch? At this point, it's OK to spill your beans since people knowing your items will only help their price increase.
I'm looking forward to goofing around in the game, but also to making a lot of gold. Speaking of gold, players will be buying lots of it, and the price has already peaked at over 8 gold. I predicted 10 gold by Christmas Day, so here's hoping I'm right! At this point, you could buy gold when it's around 6 gold and hope to sell at 10, but that's not much profit when you take the 36% fee out for selling it.
Wintersday gifts are exploding, but be warned! These could greatly decrease in price the longer the holiday goes on. I bought them when they were below the current buy order, so I'm hoping to make gold by heavily undercutting the current price of the gifts. If you manage to get some on buy orders right now, then you can do the same.
For example, I'll get large wintersday gifts for 25 silver and then list for 50 silver, even though the cheapest listing is over a gold. Don't be greedy and you'll stay on the nice list ;)
Flawless Snowflakes are an easy flip right now, and will continue to be throughout the holiday.
I experimented with flipping sealed package of snowballs today, and I was surprised that they actually sold!
I continue to sell giver's weapons and don't think that the holiday will do anything other than bring more attention to these beauties. Just do a search for "giver" and the include fine, masterwork, or rare. You'll find a lot of great flips!
So what are your plans for the holidays?
